David Field's work inhabits a world bathed in chiaroscuro and clouded in mystery. This world is born in the pages of his sketchbooks. He maintains his painterly approach throughout production, while depicting haunting subjects in a dramatic light.
Field began his professional life as a photographer, commissioned by global brands such as Pioneer Electronics, Tanqueray Gin, Bacardi, 42 Below Vodka, and Pathé Films. His photographs were exhibited in prestigious venues such as the Guggenheim Museum and still frequent awards publications like Communication Arts. In 2010, he was recognized by Hasselblad as the "Hassy-NYC" photographer of the year and was awarded their flagship camera system, valued at over twenty thousand dollars. His passion for visual storytelling has since budded into a narrative filmmaking career, utilizing the entire spectrum of his fine arts background. His debut film CATERPILLAR (Vimeo Staff Pick, Short of the Week) was selected in over ten festivals worldwide, racking up numerous awards. His followup film, THE OTHER HALF is scheduled to premiere in Spring 2014. He was recently honored by Adobe when they asked him to be their guest presenter of the 2013 filmmaking Design Achievement Awards. Field is currently in production with a film based on author Scott Westerfeld's paranormal thriller novel, AFTERWORLDS.
Field has served as guest lecturer for the Savannah College of Art and Design, The School of Visual Arts, The Borough of Manhattan Community College, The Rochester Institute of Technology, and the John S. Davidson Fine Arts School.
